In more recent times, the tune for
this rhyme has been used in television
commercials, most notably one for
Chef Boyardi canned pasta products.
I remember the Orwell "1984" sequence
well. The book was written 1948 (the year
of my birth, and Orwell's death). Orwell
transposed the "4" and the "8" in that
year, and the result was "1984," the year
and title of his book. Clever. Also
a depressing scenario.
